So it’s a little misleading to suggest that today, or Friday the 15th of February, is the official birthday of Saint Louis city.  Fortunately this isn’t a history blog, so we’ll accept the nit picking of dates like the  middle of the month Pierre Laclede sent his 14-year old stepson Auguste Chouteau in the winter of 1844 to build up the city grid on the banks of the levee.  Wikipedia be damned, because our research indicates this city was actually built on rock and roll.Concert Poster

So what better way to celebrate that tradition (and our blatant disregard for historical accuracy) that to rock that night, February 15th, starting at 8:31 pm until 1:00 am the next day with some of your favorite music.  And what better a place to celebrate our rich cultural history than in the City Museum, where they are still celebrating their 10th birthday all year long. 

Of course if the rock regalia of 7 Shot Screamers, The Monads, and DJ Mark Lewis doesn’t sound like your ideal birthday bash, you can always pick a brawl with the Arch Rival Roller Girls on the third floor Old Circus Space.  This is assuming that you’re over the age of 18, and/or over 21 birthdays past to toast the town with an adult beverage, in which case the show is free after paying ordinary admission to the museum (about $10).

Check the Highway 61 (revised) events calendar for this and other events you want to know about.
